Afternoon tea with author Jacqueline Ward

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday’s ‘Afternoon Tea with author Jacqueline Ward’ event. It was held in the perfect setting of Alexandra Park’s Conservatory in Oldham. Jacqueline gave a reading from her psychological thriller, Perfect Ten, then enthralled the audience with an informative talk about her career and the publishing industry. I’m looking forward to reading my signed copy of Perfect Ten.

It was lovely to meet Jacqueline for the first time and to reacquaint myself with Phaedra Patrick and Dan Forrester. (Thanks for the lift home, Phaedra. Much appreciated.)

The event was part of Oldham Library’s annual Bookmark Festival. A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The audiobook of The Trouble With Liam is now available

I was excited to see the audiobook of my latest book, The Trouble With Liam, had popped up on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes last night.

This morning, I was even more excited to see my ninth audiobook, beautifully narrated by Tracey Norman, has already been Whispersynced. This means if you buy the Kindle edition for 99p, you can buy the audiobook for £3.47 instead of £22.89 or equivalent currencies. I love a bargain, don’t you?

THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM, is a powerful psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield. It tells the life story of Liam O’Sullivan in all its twisted glory. The book begins with tales of Liam’s challenging childhood in Dublin and follows him through tragic events which change him into a misogynistic, controlling, ultimately lethal bully living in Sheffield. Liam thought he could do as he pleased … until he was taught otherwise. Prepare to be shocked in different ways throughout the book. If you’re not a fan of thrillers or reading books containing violence, sex, and swearing, please avoid The Trouble With Liam. If you enjoy lashings of dark humour, situations to make your eyes pop out, thrills of every kind all wrapped up in a gripping, dramatic storyline, please read on. I’m currently writing the next books in the series, The Trouble With Russell, and The Trouble With Kate.

Happy Birthday to Me

PhotoFunia-1540159587

I’ve had a fantastic birthday weekend with my daughter, Zoe. She’s an incredibly busy editor for a magazine, so I particularly appreciate the effort she always goes to each year to travel hundreds of miles to my house to make my birthday special. I gave her a paperback edition of The Trouble With Liam and await her opinion. I’ve warned her how shocking some of the chapters are, but it’s so far received nine 5-star reviews on Goodreads in its first month, so it appears readers enjoy my latest book despite the shocks, maybe because of them.

THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM was published on Amazon on 1.10.2018. It’s a powerful psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield and tells the life story of Liam O’Sullivan in all its twisted glory. It begins with tales of his challenging childhood in Dublin and follows him through sometimes tragic events which change him into a misogynistic, controlling, ultimately lethal bully living in Sheffield. Liam thought he could do as he pleased … until he was taught otherwise. Prepare to be shocked in different ways throughout the book. If you’re not a fan of thrillers or reading books containing violence, sex, and swearing, please avoid The Trouble With Liam. If you enjoy lashings of dark humour, situations to make your eyes pop out, thrills of every kind all wrapped up in a gripping, dramatic storyline, please read on. I’m currently writing the next book in the series, The Trouble With Russell.

I hope I survive the night because I’m publishing the Kindle and paperback of THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM on Amazon tomorrow, the1st October. I’d hate for you not to be able to read it.

Book 10 is almost here

I uploaded the MOBI and pdf files of my new book, THE HOSTILE GAME onto my Facebook Hostile Series Launch Team page today.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1694776034176904/

If anyone would like to join the other valued members of my Launch Team for The Hostile Game, the third paranormal thriller in The Hostile series, please just ask. I’d be thrilled to have you on board. My new book can be read as a standalone, but the MOBI and pdf files for the first two published books are also in the Files section on the Hostile series Launch Team page if you also want to read those. Book one in the series is called The Hostile, and the second book is Holiday for The Hostile.
I have been a member of five or six launch teams on Facebook and fully recognise their worth. I aim to publish The Hostile Game on Amazon in Kindle and paperback by the end of April after I’ve received feedback from my wonderful launch team members. It’ll be the 10th book I’ve written, designed and published in ten years.
